Here We {yawn} Go

Posted by Nanc

I’m not certain what I’m doing up at this unholy (to me) hour, but I’m awake enough to be excited. I’m going to Maryland. Specifically, to the MD Sheep & Wool Festival!

Chris is my traveling companion, and this is our 3rd year attending.

Matt is so very kind and handsome, and is driving me to Chris’, who will drive us both to the airport.

Again, let me state that I am excited (and being off work may have something to do with it).

Okay, I purposefully misspelled squee just to make a clever. (One “u” or two, what the big whoop?) It’s not the first time I’ve done this, and probably not the last.

Knitting Present

Posted by Nanc

Now that I’ve cleared my knitting past, I can post something a bit more up to date. True, these projects aren’t exactly today, but they’re recent enough for me.

Knitting Past

Posted by Nanc

Looking back, there have been some significant knits that, although completed and enjoyed by their recipients, I never blogged. These projects were all knit in 2007, most in the later part of the year, ta’ boot. But still, that’s no excuse.

(Long and picture heavy post.)

O Canada Socks

Posted by Nanc

There may be a plethora of lyric versions for this anthem of the great white north, but I have just two socks named for it. (Although each is a bit different by accident.)

I finished my first pair of socks for the year! Never mind that I made the first sock back in June.

It’s washing day

Posted by Nanc

Okay, so the title doesn’t invoke excitement or make one want to read this post, but I promise that the pictures are worth it (for knitters, at least). Come see what my washing entails.

I know that should read “and the hole in which I fell down”, but who wants to read all that. So, pbtthhhh to that and let’s move on.

A little planning goes a long way. And it can be thrown out the proverbial window in a moment’s notice.

There is controversy, confusion, and upheaval for me around Socktoberfest and what socks I should knit. How will this end?

Ante-Socktoberfest

Posted by Nanc

Before we get all immersed in Socktoberfest, let me clear the air a bit with some finished socks. Yes, that’s right. F.O.s!

The Gargoyle demanded it

Posted by Nanc

Spurred on by Socktoberfest and encouraged by my gargoyle buddy, I was compelled today to wear handknit socks.

Never mind that it is supposed to be 91° today. (Did I mention that fall is only an idea, a state of mind, in TX?)

I’m wearing my Mega Boots socks and lovin’ it! (Thank goodness for office A/C.)
